One of my favorite tools on the Tablet PC is the 'Snipping Tool'. I have been using it frequently since the early XP days (back then we shipped it seperately as a Power Toy). Now in Vista, it's part of the main OS and I find myself using it quite often event on my desktop PC.
When I was using the tool recently, I got this idea for a new Silverlight sample app: wouldn't it be cool to snip pieces from various images and put them together as a collage in Silverlight - and then annotate the result with text, drawings and/or handwriting?
Silverlight's imaging and ink APIs make this fairly easy. Here are my results of this effort using Silverlight v1.0 - the sample demonstrates these features:
Couple of notes and caveats:
The sample's complete source code is attached to this post. A live version, hosted via Silverlight Streaming, is included below for you try out. Click the button to launch the app:
